Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we do! We offer Hybrid, EVE, and DE courses - all of these are described more fully below.
All online courses are open to students who meet the regular course requirements. It is strongly recommended that you take the Is Online Learning For Me? quiz to determine if an online course is right for you. EVE courses at LTCC are online, but feel more like face-to-face. DE classes are also online, but they are more like traditional online courses that require students to be more organized and self-reliant. Read more about the different kinds of online courses LTCC offers below.
Due in part to the increased popularity of distance education, many states have prescribed an “authorization” process for out-of-state institutions delivering online programs to its state residents. States are attempting through these processes to ensure quality post-secondary education, to preserve the integrity of an academic degree and to instill greater consumer protection for their student citizens. Please read LTCC's policy on State Authorization of Distance Education Outside of California to see if your state is on LTCC's list of approved states.

A Hybrid course is a course with both face-to-face and online components. At LTCC, these often include classes with hands-on training requirements that lead to particular credentials and licenses, along with some science labs. Read more about Hybrid courses at LTCC.
